|Russian ship yards to build cruise ships|
Reports are circulating that Russian Shipbuilding yards may be re-entering the cruise ship construction business. Reports out of Russia are stating that the United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC) will announce shortly that construction will begin on a cruise ship. This will be the first time in over a decade that Russia has constructed a vessel of this type. USC is the largest ship builder in Russia with over 60 yards and 80,000 employees. It is unclear who the new ship will be built for and whether it will be an ocean going vessel or perhaps a river cruise ship. More to come in the upcoming weeks.
